I had the great fortune of caring for Diane for nearly 5 years. So precious was her heart that when she loved you, you glowed in her company.
Diane always had the dearest smile for me and I will always treasure her love, the gifts of wisdom she gave to me and her laughter at Dennis’s antics. I miss you Di. I know you’re watching and guiding us all.
“I love you a bushel and a peck” forever and always. Sherri
